Robert Gehorsam Joins the Board of Advisors
We are happy to announce that Robert Gehorsam has joined our Board of Advisors. I have known Robert for over twenty years and he has a wealth of management experience in game and entertainment technology companies. He also knows everyone!
Today, Robert is CEO at Image Metrics, which makes incredibly cool software that animates human faces – and other creatures – for movies and games. Check out the Image Metrics site, it’s really cool. Here’s how Robert describes himself on his site:
“Robert Gehorsam brings to Image Metrics 25 years of management experience in online media, entertainment and games. Robert was previously President and a Director of Forterra Systems, which marketed the leading enterprise-class virtual world software platform. He also served as Senior Vice President at Viacom’s CBS Internet Group, where he was responsible for content, creative, production and operations for CBS.com, CBSnews.com and related wholly-owned CBS internet properties. Prior to joining Viacom, he was Senior Vice President for Programming and Production at Sony Online Entertainment (SOE), where, in addition to business planning for SOE, he was directly responsible for all operations, product acquisition and development, and technology for TheStation@sony.com, one of the world’s most popular game destinations on the Internet. From 1985-1992 Robert founded and led Prodigy’s games and educational divisions, launching dozens of online titles. He also held management positions at Scholastic Inc. and consulted on entertainment and broadband strategy to Microsoft, America Online, CNET, Ziff-Davis and Children’s Television Workshop.”
Robert is both creative and has a great feeling for what makes games and other entertainment products fun and engaging. He himself is fun and engaging! We are thrilled that he’s agreed to join our advisory board.
PS. Robert also has a Bachelor’s Degree in Literature and Religious Studies from Grinnell College, that fount of technology wisdom. :-D
